What do you think about the order of these paired words? For example, in English we say "black and white" instead of "white and black". I came across the following in a translation assignment: gauche-droite, devant-derrière, dessus-dessous Are these in the natural French order? I think in English we would say: right-left, front-back, on-under It seems odd that French would do it the other way, although why not? What do you think?
